  • GRIFO Radar: Advances and developments in high-resolution modes for an expert avionic radar for fighters

    In the 90s, Galileo Avionica (GA Radar Systems Business Unit) has developed the GRIFO Radar, a multimode-multirole pulse Doppler radar, devoted to occupy an important role in the family of the radar for weapon release. In the last 15 years more than 400 units have been sold to five Air Forces, for more than 100,000 hours of operative flights. The need for the implementation of high- resolution modes, with seaborne targets identification for the Italian Navy, pushed to the extension of the Grifo Radar to high-resolution applications. This paper describes the results obtained with a modified version of this device, indicated as Experimental HR-Grifo, with high-resolution capabilities. Based on the low-resolution modes of the Grifo, this radar allowed to search and track the targets, and to acquire the pertinent high-resolution signals, making use of the Deramp On Receive technique. In the experimental version the signals were recorded and processed offline during the flight and in the lab, to tune the algorithms and to experience the problems related to the sub- metric resolutions. A number of flights, onboard the GA Aircraft, and ground sessions have been performed with air, ground and sea cooperative military moving targets. The experience in the hardware design and the amount of high- resolution data recorded has allowed the finalization of high-resolution modes (SAR and ISAR) in the last versions of the Grifo Radar which is going to flight test these applications in real time on November 2007.

  • An update on the multi-channel phased array Weather Radar at the National Weather Radar Testbed

    The first phased array radar dedicated to weather observation and analysis is now instrumented with eight, simultaneous digital receivers. The multi-channel receiver will collect signals from the sum, azimuth-difference, elevation difference, and five broad-beamed auxiliary channels. The multi-channel receiver will allow the direct implementation of interferometry techniques to estimate crossbeam wind, shear and turbulence within a radar resolution volume. Access to the auxiliary channels will enable clutter mitigation and advanced array processing for high data quality with short dwell times. Potential benefits of high quality and high resolution data together with angular shear and turbulence include better understanding of storm dynamics and convective initiation, as well as better detection of small-scale phenomena including tornado and microbursts, ultimately leading to increased lead time for warnings, and improved weather prediction. This paper will describe the system concept, system installation and early results from fielded weather data returns.

  • Fast radar signal simulator for SAR ground penetrating applications

    In the last years, in order to investigate the distribution of water in the upper part of the Matianpsilas crust, two different instruments have been developed, and operative up to now: Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS) and SHA allow RADar (SHARAD). Both the instruments are low frequency (1.8-5 MHz for MARSIS and 20 MHz for SHARAD) Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) in altimeter configuration which use the synthetic aperture technique. In this work will be presented an efficient procedure to detect the possible presence of specific subsurface features using the available surface topography data. In particular a fast radar signal simulator approach, designed in order to reduce the large computational time that represents the greatest application limit to this detection procedure will be presented. After a theoretical discussion of this technique and its validity, an example of application is presented using the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) data.

  • Wind Turbine radar signature characterization by laboratory measurements

    WTC (Wind Turbine Clutter) is clutter caused by wind turbines in the radar vicinity. As the power capacity of a single wind turbine increases, its size also increases dramatically. As a result, wind turbines not only block the radar beam, causing shadowing effects, but also create spectral contaminations due to the blade rotation. As a recently recognized type of clutter, WTC radar signatures need to be fully studied so that better solutions can be found for mitigation from radar data. Field measurements have difficulties controlling wind turbine motions, but laboratory measurements have full control of the wind turbine model, radar and EM environment. For such a purpose, the wind turbine-radar interaction was emulated in the laboratory, with full controllability of a scaled wind turbine model in an anechoic chamber. A scatterometer was made to emulate the actual radar functions. The measured wind turbine model Radar Cross Section (RCS) fluctuation caused by blade rotation and yaw movement will be shown. The Physical Optics (PO) EM solver was applied to simulate the scaled model RCS. The spectrogram and related features will also be analyzed.

  • GRIFO radar: new results of high-resolution modes for an expert avionic radar for fighters

    In the 90s, Galileo Avionica (GA Radar Systems Business Unit) has developed the GRIFO Radar, a multimode-multirole pulse Doppler radar, devoted to occupy an important role in the family of the radar for weapon release. In the last 15 years more than 400 units have been sold to five Air Forces, for more than 100,000 hours of operative flights. The need for the implementation of high- resolution modes, with seaborne targets identification for the Italian navy, pushed to the extension of the Grifo radar to high-resolution applications. With the new capability, making use of the deramp on receive technique, Grifo radar can now perform spot-SAR on ground patch as well as ISAR upon A/A and A/S target tracking ISAR. This paper describes the real-time results obtained during the last flight tests of the Grifo, newly upgraded with high-resolution modes, which were carried out in November and December 2008.

  • The applications and future of synthetic impulse and aperture radar

    The Synthetic Impulse and Aperture Radar (SIAR), which is a typical Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) radar with orthogonal frequency waveforms, has the advantages of more degrees of freedom, higher angular resolution and target detection probability than traditional phased array radar. In this paper, a brief introduction of the basic features and the advantages of SIAR is given first. Then two applications used in high frequency surface wave and microwave band are presented with some real data results. Finally, we discuss the possible applications and its future.

  • Single-pulse multi-beams operation of phased array radar

    Colocated Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radar can achieve single-pulse multi-beams just through waveform design for transmit array but it needs for a more complicated system structure. In this paper, we study a time division method to make a conventional phased-array radar achieve the single-pulse multi-beams capability. At each code transmission instant, the phased-array operates in the phased-array radar mode, with a high directivity transmit beam illuminated toward a certain direction; whereas for different code transmission instants, the spatial direction to point may be different so that multiple transmit beams are formed within a pulse. In order to suppress mutual interference from signals in different spatial directions, nearly-orthogonal waveforms are used for different spatial directions. The power ratios for different spatial directions can be controlled by the number of codes allocated. Simulation results are given to show the performance.

  • Real time indoor presence detection with a novel radar on a chip

    A novel FMCW radar on a chip operating in the 24 GHz band has been used for presence detection in an office environment. Real time detection of small movements (i.e. typing) has been demonstrated. A comparison of the performances of the radar sensor and of the traditional intelligent lighting PIR sensor has been carried out. While the radar is able to detect a movement of 1 cm along the radial direction, the PIR sensor can detect mainly larger movements along the tangential direction, showing the complementarity of these two sensors. Both sensors have a reaction time of less than 200 ms.

  • Design and implementation of a 24 GHz FMCW radar system for automotive applications

    In this paper, we designed and implemented a 24 GHz FMCW radar system based on FPGA and DSP. We also developed a 24 GHz FMCW radar RF module composed of a single transmitter and a single transmitting antenna array of five elements to measure distances at a high degree of accuracy for 24 GHz FMCW radar. To verify the developed radar system, a test bed was fabricated to measure the distance for every 1 mm. The experimental results show that the system is accurate to a distance of approximately 3 cm between 0.5 m and 3.4 m.
